One Winter Morning
Energy Musings. Here. Now.
Balancing the 5 elements. The five elements being: aakash (ether/space), vayu (air), tejas/agni (fire), jala (water), and prithvi (earth). In each moment, in each being, in each conversation, in each decision, in each action, in each place…. all 5 elements are always present. For true clarity, these 5 elements must be appropriately balanced in each case.
Appropriately balanced does not equate to Equal! Sometimes more of one and less of another is what is called for to achieve balance. Perhaps you are lost in thought, dangling in space, dreamy and unable to make a decision? You are lost in Ether! You might need the solidity of Earth to bring you into balance for positive forward momentum. Or maybe you are stuck in rigid thinking, with a linear one track mind and you feel you are banging your head against the wall. Too much Fire! Some of that spaciousness might aid you in seeing other perspectives and finding the place of least resistance. In every case, you are asked to consider all 5 elements as you move through your decisions, your life, your world.
Apply this concept to whatever might need your attention today. Be it the physical body, a decision needing to be made, your worldview or a relationship. See what happens and what you learn when you consider the balancing of the 5 elements. You might want to draw, paint, dance or sing them to get to know them better in the process. As you come to know each of these elements better, you come to know all the places in yourself better as well. Bringing awareness in through each of these lenses.
